For Ones Own Liberation and the Welfare of the World (1-3)
Swami Atmajnanananda

The Mot­to of The Ramarkr­ish­na Order is Ātmano mok­shārtham jagad-hitāya cha (आत्मनॊ मोक्षार्थम् जगद्धिताय च). Trans­lat­ed from San­skrit, it means “For one’s own lib­er­a­tion, and for the wel­fare of the world”. In this three part series of lec­tures Swa­mi Atma­jna­na­nanda dis­cuss­es this mot­to with its two guid­ing prin­ci­ples “lib­er­a­tion for one­self and ser­vice to mankind”.
